3 Mile Domination, a provider of training resources for the self-storage industry, has launched a free weekly podcast that offers tips on staff training, sales, facility operation and day-to-day management. The podcasts are hosted by industry veterans Jim Ross and Matthew Van Horn.
The company has released 21 podcasts to date including discussions on the importance of maintaining a clean and organized office, using cloud storage for business purposes, and creating a budget. 3 Mile Domination also has released several “Quick Hit” videos that provide tips for self-storage operators, some of which have been featured on Self-Storage TV, an online video platform launched earlier this year by Inside Self-Storage (ISS).
"Matt and I are passionate about the self-storage industry," Ross said. "We wanted to bring our unique experiences into a weekly discussion format that everyone in the self-storage business can benefit from. We have both been in the industry from a manager level, regional manager up to owner level, so we have a unique perspective to draw upon in our weekly program."
The podcasts can be accessed for free on iTunes as well as through the 3 Mile Domination app available for Apple and Android devices.
Ross and Van Horn are vice presidents with Cutting Edge Self Storage Management, a full-service company specializing in facility management, feasibility studies, consulting, development, and joint ventures. The two men teamed to present the education session “3-Mile Domination: How to Lead Your Self-Storage Market,” during the 2013 Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Las Vegas.
The session focused on how self-storage operators can dominate their local market through technology, marketing, customer service, revenue management and training. The presentation is available in on-demand video and DVD formats from the ISS Store, an e-commerce website providing on-demand insight and education products for self-storage professionals.
